DT - IND
Week 13 Outlook
DeForest Buckner practiced on Friday.
Buckner logged back-to-back practices after he was sidelined on Wednesday. Buckner played limited snaps in Week 4 after missing practice all week. He shouldn't be limited on Sunday against the Titans barring any setbacks.
DeForest Buckner missed a third straight day of practice on Friday.
Buckner's status is in doubt for Sunday against the Rams after not practicing once all week. It is still possible he could play without practicing, but it'll be something to monitor on the injury report.
DeForest Buckner was not present for team drills Thursday due to a foot injury suffered earlier in practice.
Buckner returned to the field to watch practice but did not participate after being attended to for his foot injury. The team has not released any additional information on the severity of the injury. The veteran should be considered day-to-day for now.
Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle DeForest Buckner is active for Monday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Buckner was listed as questionable coming into tonight's game due to a rib injury and an illness. Buckner is a key piece of the Colts' defensive front and is even more important with players like Shaq Leonard, and Kwity Paye sidelined. Buckner is a DT1/DL2 option for the plus matchup against the Steelers.
DeForest Buckner (hip) is active for Week 2 against Jacksonville.
Buckner was listed as questionable heading into Week 2. With the Colts missing Shaquille Leonard again on defense, and the injuries to the wide receivers on offense, Buckner and the Colts’ defense will need to be stout against Jacksonville Sunday.
